I am having an issue with my new co2
system. I have had pressurized co2
systems for a while now and never had this issue. I recently bought a new set up for a new tank. My issue is no matter how high I have the needle valve turned up I get the same bps. The issue only happens when I have a my inline bubble counter installed and have everything else hooked up. WHen I don't have it hooked up then I can push all the co2
I want (based on observation of the diffuser). But when I put in the bubble counter to accurately measure how much I am pumping I only get about 1 bps regardless how high I have the needle valve. When I unscrew the top part of the bubble counter then the system shoots up a sh*t ton of bubbles. So based on that I thought it was the top of the bubble counter but when I inspect it nothing seems to be wrong, it not clogged or anything. And what is weird is that when I disconnected the diffuser from the system and put the end of the hose in the water I get alot of bubbles.
So in short it seems that I can only have one or the other but not both and I cannot figure out why. Has anyone had this problem before and was able to diagnose it? I have sprayed soapy water on the whole system and to check for leaks but there was none. Any advise or help would be great.
